UN Agriculture Chief: Progress against hunger, poverty depends on indigenous women empowering

17.01.2018 08:02 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) As of this week, while speaking within the Forum on Indigenous Women in Mexico City, Jose Graziano da Silva, Director-General of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), said empowering indigenous women — who have higher malnutrition rates than any other social group and typically earn far less than men — is key to successfully fighting hunger and extreme poverty, UN Website reports. «Indigenous women face a triple discrimination — poverty, gender and ethnicity, both within and outside their communities — making them highly vulnerable,» he said. As to him, they confront far higher rates of poverty, chronic malnutrition and illiteracy while having the least access to health care and political life. As to the report, about 5% of the global population and 15% of the world poorest, or some 370 million people, self-identify as indigenous. Within Latin America and the Caribbean region, 15% of the approximately 45 million indigenous peoples face insecurity and extreme poverty. «Their social and economic empowerment is not only an excellent way to support them, but a necessary condition to eradicate hunger and malnutrition in their communities,» underscored Mr. da Silva. He noted that the UN decision to begin a Family Farming Decade within 2019 offers a platform to focus on rural livelihoods — where most indigenous peoples work. It is to be admitted, the FAO-organized Indigenous Women Forum aims to develop public policy recommendations to empower indigenous women, strengthen their decision-making and recognize their rights.
